“From the “Exile On Main St.” cassette, SHOV 3
Pussy Galore moved to New York City in June of ’86. John Hammill stayed behind and was replaced by Bob Bert. With Bob came the introduction of a drum kit that incorporated pieces of metal (street signs, automative springs, the gas tank from a large American-built car, and later, Steve Albini’s cock ring) thereby eliminating the need for some extra person to bang on things and solidifying the PG sound. “Exile” was done as a sort of gag response to Sonic Youth’s often-stated intent to cover the Beatles’ White Album. Neil knew the Stones’ “Exile” well and was given the task of interpreting the record and teaching it to the rest of us. Neil would present a song to the band, we would play it a few times, then lay it down. In this manner the entire album was recorded in sequence. By side three everyone had gotten into the swing of it and we were not yet sick of the process. Recorded with the “Pussy Galore Mobile Unit,” a borrowed cassette 4-track, in the PG practice space, NYC, Aug 24-26, ’86.”
